You’re Invited to an Exclusive Wicked Tea Party Event, Let the Story Begin.

Before you begin: click here if you are interested in modeling in our next masterpiece series.

There is a world beyond our most immediate grasp where the journey takes more than a mere agreement to travel. Moments exist where we can step out of ourselves to indulge in our imaginations and dress in our deepest colors. We don’t transform ourselves, we just express a piece of us that often resides reclusive.  In these tributes of expression we find there is more to each of us, then we will ever know.  There is a lightness and a darkness as we emerge and submerge in the undulation we call dreaming.

“If we let it, our imagination will create our reality”


There’s room to explore, there’s room to believe. There is always something to fear and there is always something to embrace.

To understand the good and evil in everyone is to embrace both and determine which is greater and where to give your heart.


We gather with friends and we are surrounded by enemies, never understanding who is who in this battle, but we feel the tension and confuse it’s purpose. wtp-final-shots-38wtp-final-shots-37

We desire to let go, yet we hold on tightly to something we don’t quite understand. Our hearts leap forward and sometimes the lines of good and evil must be drawn. wtp-final-shots-36wtp-final-shots-35

A war begins in the quietest of moments we find the first resistance, the first time we don’t agree.

We must decide. wtp-final-shots-17

To capture hearts we must veil and unveil truth, but the looking glass looking back at you is a shrewd filter..wtp-final-shots-27-2wtp-final-shots-29




So it’s time for us all to gather in one place and accept the invitation for friendship or deny it’s acceptance. wtp-100

For among us a power is brewing and we can only sense it’s presence without it’s tangibility. wtp-final-shots-11-2wtp-final-shots-6For together we explore, together we journey, but our destinations may never be the same.



As we search we will follow the light or we will follow the shadows. wtp-final-shots-14wtp-final-shotsa-5

So we feast among us and wait for those with dark intentions to show themselves. wtp-final-shots-26wtp-final-shots-12-2wtp-final-shots-16-2

We must follow or we must lead. Our hearts are deceivers and our company it’s reflection. wtp-final-shots-41wtp-final-shotsa-7wtp-final-shots-17-2wtp-final-shots-18wtp-final-shots-20-2wtp-final-shots-21-2wtp-final-shots-22-2wtp-final-shots-23-2wtp-final-shots-24-2

Kings and queens may dine together lest they actually agree.  Wars brew behind smiles and betrayal behind laughter. Dessert disguises dissention and soon we will separate. wtp-final-shots-26-2

There will be those who face the light, but turn from it’s warmth. wtp-final-shots-32wtp-final-shots-33

And in the end, we know a tale as old as time is the plan for good and evil to divide.

“Wicked Tea Party” Beyond the images. A bridge from reality to fantasy.{An upstate New York photoshoot}

Photoshoot: Wicked Tea Party

Location: M&D Farm

Photographer: Amber J Photography (Amber J Seniors & Amber J Teens)

Your invited to see beyond the images: THANK YOU M&D Farm for this video!

It’s often a challenge for many young girls and guys to step out and do something different.  When we dream, we dream big, but when we live, we live small.  Our recent adventure with 13 amazing young ladies included dreaming big and living big.  It’s a credit to every girl that stepped into our imagination and brought it to life.

Our models included : Abbey (Gilboa Central School) , Claudina (Guilderland High), Sydney (Averill Park High School), Jaylah (Middleburgh High School), Kayla (Cobleskill High), Allie, (Cobleskill High) Brooke (Dover), Cheryl (Guilderland), Gianna (Coxsackie High), Juliette (Unatego), Carissa (Schoharie High School), Anna (Colonie High)  and Alexis (Walton High School) trusted, lept and indulged creative minds to bring enchantment into a Monday in October.

“Be different, not too different. Be bold, but not too bold.

Be beautiful, but not too beautiful. Be good, but not too good”

This quote, this ideal was shattered when these amazing young women stepped into our world.  Why? Because they embraced something very different. very bold. very beautiful and not good…but absolutely amazing.  That is what makes this group of women powerful, beautiful and mystical.

Our portrait pieces have been featured on Instagram here with our sister site: Amber J Teens.  and M&D Farm

Here’s how it all began.

The Westerlo countryside is becoming one of the premiere locations for photoshoots and films. M&D Farms is nestled in our backyard among some of the richest scenery in New York State.  Therefore, it made perfect sense to partner up with these talented venue owners and begin creating.

It all started with an idea of using the fields near the farmhouse for a tea party, but tea parties have been done and we wanted something different to explore and bring to life.  Our tea party took a twist and out of some twisting came a darker version suited for the month of October, allowing us to play with rich colors, dark shadows and enchanting sets.

It was then time to find talent, crazy awesome talent and this team of make up artists decide THIS tea party is worth attending. Check out more of their work provided near the end of this post with our model video!

Introducing Kayla! {Margetville Central School Senior Portraits}

This lovely girl has so much ahead of her in this beautiful thing we call life.  Her goals, her ambitions are big, but so is her heart.  What a great way to spend a morning, but to spend it photographing Kayla and listening to her plans, her dreams and her future.  This Margaretville senior has a flare for success, you can feel it just by being around her.  I am honored and excited to showcase her and her extraordinary self!

Those gorgeous locks had the magic touch of Jessica Wynia Hair and Make Up.


Alexis!!! {Walton Central School}

Some of the most beautiful places are right where we live.  Alexis took me to her farm in Bovina (yup it’s a place!) and could have photographed for hours!!  The quiet, scenic farmland was absolutely perfect for this young, beautiful student athlete.

The best part of this entire experience is spending time and getting to know the person Iare putting in front of my camera.

May this glimpse of Alexis make you smile! It did me!

Introducing Rachel! Jefferson Central School

Rachel is a blast.  It’s a ton of fun to photograph a girl who want her tractor, her truck and her horse!  The beautiful spot in Jefferson is about 9 miles from where I grew up, so it’s always a pleasure to return to my roots and work with seniors who have attended my alma mater.

This session did NOT disappoint! Thank you Rachel for letting me spend some valuable time with you! Good luck in all life has for you!
